Description from manager

The Marco Polo apartment is located at the second floor of an historical building found few steps to the beautiful Campo Santa Maria Formosa, in the Castello district, only 5 minutes walk to Piazza San Marco and the Rialto Bridge, thus absolutely central.

This is one of our favorite areas of Venice historical center, close to the main tourist attractions but still quiet and well serviced by small shops and restaurants as well as supermarkets. Some of the main sites in found in the surroundings are the church of San Giovanni e Paolo, Palazzo Grimani and Querini Stampalia, the Rialto Market and the Bridge of sights, besides the renowned treasures of San Mark's Basilica and the Doge's Palace.

The lay-out of the Marco Polo apartment is well designed, with a generous entrance, a spacious living room facing south full of light, one double bedroom with en-suite bathroom, a twin/double bedroom, a single bedroom with trundle bed and a second bathroom with bathtub. The apartment has very specific features inherited by the original structure such as antique parquet flooring, wooden beamed ceilings, old style doors and windows, Marmorino walls (Stucco Veneziano), stone balconies facing the canal. During the recent restoration the landlord tastefully blended these historical elements with up-to-date furniture and appliances, in order to maximize the comfort, while preserving the Venetian ambience with Murano Glass Chandeliers, traditional fabrics and details.

The equipment of the Marco Polo include air conditioning (but only in the living room and in the corridor between the rooms), Wi-Fi internet connection, wide flat-screen TV with international channels, DVD player, washing machine, dishwasher, oven, microwave, kettle, 4 burners gas stoves, large fried and freezer, etc.

Notwithstanding the already listed many reasons why you should choose this apartment, with no doubt the most interesting feature is the truly authentic and romantic canal view enjoyable from the living room. We suggest to get a private water taxi that will take you very close to the entrance door of the apartment, as the Vaporetto (public ferry boat) stop is not behind the corner, especially if you carry heavy luggage.

Additional amenities include: smoking not permitted, iron & ironing board, hairdryer, central location.
